3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAY 7, 2014 Rerate: Dark copper color with small white head and little lacing- thick and oily. Aroma is resinous, some tropical fruits, pinches the nose like a bit of gasoline. Flavor is very bitter, lots of earthy vegetable, and syrupy candy malt finish. Big hop bomb. Full body, big alcohol presence- pretty intense. Very different from my first experience 6 months ago, and still good, but not what I remember and not what I expected.
11/16/2012: (10)(3)(8)(4)( Amber color with very small diminishing white head. Oily on the glass with no lacing. Aroma is Fantastic- huge huge fruity & floral hops! Amazing fruity hop flavor with an intense grapefruity bitter finish. Best $9 bomber I’ve probably ever had- puts Hoppin Frog’s $14 Hop Dam to shame...

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
BOTTLE. Hazy light gold pour with solid foamy white head.. Fresh citrus & grassy hops on the nose, a touch of musk as well.. Good mix of caramel malt & sticky hops start to finish, resiny mouth feel lingers for quite a while yet hides that big ABV extremely well.. Sourced Cellarbrations @ Capel

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Clear copper pour, fluffy white head. Beautiful beer. Aroma is super dank hops: oniony, garlicy, bright citrus, pine, no malts whatsoever. Lovely. Full bodied, mango, citrus, highly drinkable given the ABV. Really good.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber sampled at home. Hazy orange with a white head. Smells like caramel, unripe mango, fresh pineapple, lime. The taste is very well balanced, full of fruity and bitter hop flavours. The alcohol is there, a bit in the smell and a bit more in the aftertaste, but still a fair amount less than I expected. Soft mouthfeel and medium bodied with a low carbonation and a hop bitter, alcohol spicy, tropical fruity aftertaste.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Belmont Station, Portland
Hazy golden color with compact head. Tropical and citrusy explosion, perfect pale malt canvas, balanced. Lean, with very moderate residual sweetness. When you can conceal bitterness and alcohol so skillfully, the result is a great beer.

Pours amber with a large head.

Bomber. Pours golden with about 1 inch off white head. Aroma is sweet citrus. Taste is sweet, hoppy alcohol. I would call it a high alcohol palate wrecker. I’m not really digging it.
